Note: The testnet node will continue running for beta testing of the coming new version of the EOSIO system, after launch of mainnet.
First of all, EOS.pacific would like to highlight its three core safety measurements:
A) EOS.pacific will have a professional operation team to manage and maintain the server.
B) EOS.pacific will also hire third party to have safety audits of the server.
C) EOS.pacific will use Amazon Web Services (AWS) Shield for DDoS attack and adjust “load balance” and extend the capacity of AWS Shield, according to the threat to the server.
EOS.pacific will be following up with the plan made by EOS community once EOSIO initiates the IPFS layer. EOS.pacific will deploy enough bandwidth and storage for IPFS node and respond quickly for the request from global locations. Also, EOS.pacific will delete certain inappropriate contents following the requirements and guidelines from EOS community in a timely manner.
EOS.pacific is implementing the scaling plan in two phases. In Phase 1 EOS.pacific will deploy the node with Amazon Web Services. The server will be based in Singapore. EOS.pacific might consider other geographical or jurisdictional choices in case of unexpected catastrophic events happen in the regions. In Phase 2, EOS.pacific will scale up the server capacity according to the usage of EOS.
When the mainnet launches, EOS.pacific will deploy BP nodes on AWS. EOS.pacific will leverage AWS’s reliable services and flexible extensions, to provide one of the best servers available in the world, for developers running DApps on EOS.
In Phase 1, the Block Producer Node will include one primary machine and one backup machine. The configurations of both the primary and backup machines are the same:
Amazon Web Services Cloud Machine:
CPU: AWS EC2 r4.8xlarge, 32-core
Storage: 1TB SSD
After launch of mainnet, EOS.pacific will continue monitoring the capacity of its nodes and scale up its capacity in advance. EOS.pacific might consider multiple locations of servers to enhance node stability. Depending on future EOS traffic, EOS.pacific might also consider implementing docker cluster based on k8s.
Partners and Representatives for global EOS communities
EOS.pacific will set up partners and representatives to be the champions building local communities in global cities. They will play an important role in organizing events to help EOS communities connect the resources with each other and with EOS.pacific.

Position on Dividends
EOS.pacific does not support the actions so called “vote buying”. A block producer should earn the qualification, not buy it. EOS.pacific believes that any of these “vote buying” actions will eventually cause damage to the EOS therefore it will not accept the “vote buying”.
